Fulbright-National Geographic Storytelling Fellowship

The Fulbright-National Geographic Storytelling Fellowship provides opportunities to participate in an academic year of storytelling on a globally significant theme.

For the 2022-2023 competition, the fellowship will accept proposals to undertake an in-depth examination of a globally relevant issue.

The National Geographic Society’s focus areas are oceans, land, wildlife, human history & cultures, and human ingenuity.

Utilizing a variety of storytelling tools – including, but not limited to text, photography, video, audio/podcasts, public speaking, maps, and graphic illustrations – storytellers have the opportunity to share their stories, and the stories of those they meet, through National Geographic and social media platforms. 

Scholars will receive benefits including travel costs coverage, a stipend for living expenses, health insurance, and more. National Geographic also provide editorial mentorship for Fellows during their Fulbright grant period.

 The deadline is on Tuesday 12th October 2021.
